Similar to Attack on Titan, Tatsuki Fujimoto's Chainsaw Man manga series is known for occasionally killing off major characters. One of which is Power, also known as the Blood Devil, who rose to fame due to her relationship with Denji and Aki, her personality, and, of course, her iconic horns. So, is Power really dead in Chainsaw Man?

Power is a Blood Fiend who joined Aki's squad as Denji's partner. When Power decided to use Denji as bait for the Bat Devil to save her pet cat, Nyako, the two had a tumultuous relationship.

In exchange for touching her breasts, Denji agreed to Power's arrangement. We've all seen how flimsy Denji's motivations are at this point!

Warning: Heavy anime spoilers beyond this point! This article contains spoilers for later events in the Chainsaw Man manga, not just the Bat Devil in the anime.

In Chainsaw Man, Power died after giving the last drops of her blood to Denji. Power defied Makima's orders and saved Denji during the fight.

Before she vanished, she made a deal with Denji in exchange for her blood. When the time comes, Denji must once again befriend the Blood Devil in Hell in order to fulfill his contract with Power.

Power and Denji were thought to be polar opposites. They initially despised each other. However, as time passed, the two of them got to the point where Denji began to care for her instead of obsessing over Makima.

Power initially only wants Denji to be her bait in order to save her pet cat, Nyako, from the Bat Devil.

Nyako is Power's pet cat, whom she wants to fatten up before eating. She grew attached to Nyako, however, and ultimately decided to keep her instead.

When the Bat Devil appears and kidnaps Nyako, the Devil Hunters apprehend Power. Makima assigned Power to Aki’s squad together with Denji. Since then, Aki and Denji have been arguing like brothers.

To save Nyako, Power made a deal with Denji in which she agreed to let him touch her breasts.

Denji, who is both illiterate and adamant about having a skinship, agreed. Denji eventually saves both Power and Nyako and touches Power's breasts.

Yes, Power is truly dead in Chainsaw Man.

Makima had invited Denji to her apartment shortly after Aki died. At the same time, Makima enticed Power to come to celebrate Denji's birthday.

Power's efforts to buy a cake and wish Denji a happy birthday, however, end tragically when Makima attempts to kill her on the spot.

Makima fired an invisible force at Power with her index finger, shredding her body into pieces.

Pochita appeared and offered his body for Power to consume, just as Power thought she was dead. Power had been dormant in Denji's inner body, as the latter had sucked some blood from her.

Power fights Makima after her resurrection. She managed to overwhelm Makima to the point where the latter decided to use the Zombie Devil to turn her slaves into zombies and fight Power.

When Makima offered to save Power's life and turn her into her pet, Power immediately betrayed Denji—or so we thought.

Power rebelled, and she resolved to fight Makima for her friendship with Denji. Denji was, after all, her first true friend.

She escaped with Denji in a nearby dumpster after realizing she couldn't beat Makima.

There, Denji reverted to his human form and spoke with Power. Before Power disappears, she makes a deal with Denji in exchange for her blood.

As of writing, there are no known ways for Power to return in Chainsaw Man, similar to Himeno and Aki.

Power is currently dead after giving up the last of her blood to Denji. However, in the future, Power will most likely appear in the form of a memory for Denji, at the very least.

Nonetheless, in Power's contract with Denji, she requests that he locate her as the Blood Devil who is reincarnated in Hell.

Power wants them to be friends again and work together to wreak havoc in Hell.
